Heart Felt Wishes

Another Penny Black challenge - this time to create a card without the use of patterned paper. I am assuming that the snowflake cuttlebug embossing folder doesn't count as "patterned" paper. The Penny Black tree "Winter Green" gave me the idea to stamp it in green. Clever huh? The tags are slanted down to mimic the slanted tree branches. The size of this card grew as my idea grew. I hope you enjoy it. The Christmas wishes stamps are "Message stor" from Costco. Remember that flower I couldn't decide on for a recent House Mouse challenge? The votes came in that the card was best without the flower -- so I used it here instead. Not much of anything gets tossed in my studio and if you don't believe me ask my dear husband who tried to remove some paper cuttings from my studio today!

Beautiful!!! I love the layout, and the way you slanted the sentiment was brilliant!!! I do remember the dilemma with the flower...I was one of the undecideds. However, I must say, it looks perfect on this wonderful Christmas card!!!
